A square pattern arrangement of 9 reinforced concrete blocks that can be seen on Google Earth aroused my curiosity. Having observed them close to, I'm still none the wiser, but as they are located in a former hutted area whose footprints are still visible from the air, perhaps they once supported a water tower or similar. The Royal Flying Corps flying training school established here in 1915 had a short life, closing after the war in 1919.
